New Larger Prints and More Cupcake Paintings

I don't know if anyone has noticed but in the right hand column of my blog I now have a link to Fine Art America where I can offer larger prints of my cupcakes.  They will be sold directly through them.  I got my first order yesterday and was told by the company that I have to re-photograph my paintings using a camera with at least 8 megapixels.  I got a new camera for Christmas and all my paintings since are photographed with this camera.  Needless to say, all my older paintings have been sold and I will now need to paint them again in order to take new pictures.  I just finished the one above, Cupcake Yum, and it's now available in my Etsy Store.  I have a few originals listed there for those of you who don't like bidding for something on eBay.  I'm going to be adding all the paintings that I have to do again to my Etsy store as I finish them.  So, if you missed out on one of these older cupcake paintings and would like one, keep watching here or in my etsy store for new listings. I won't be
re-painting my village scenes again because it's simply too much work.  But, any new ones that I paint will be listed in Fine Art America. 

My husband was amazed by the detail in the doors in Spain and the craftmanship of the hardware on them.  Below are a few and I'll share more later.
